Each year we offer two scholarships entitled ‘From Each Their Best”, which is our school motto, to our incoming students. These awards recognise students who excel in both sport and academics and who have chosen our school to continue both their academic and sporting pathways. The scholarship consists of a €250 SHAWS voucher for a full school uniform and an iPad from WRIGGLE. In previous years we also offered a set of textbooks, but they will be provided to all students this year free of charge. 

The exam will be held once only, on Thursday 23rd May from 4.30 to 6.30pm. Applications can be downloaded from this App notification, printed and submitted to the school office by no later than 4pm on Monday 20th at 4pm. 

The exam consists of approximately an hour in English and an hour of Maths. Students should bring their own pens, pencils, erasers, etc. Paper will be provided. There will be a short break between the 2 exams. All should arrive by 4.20 pm, in advance of the 4.30pm start.

In the coming month we hope to also offer the Portlaoise Rugby Club Scholarship and the Panthers Basketball Scholarship which are specific to those who excel in those two sports. All notifications and updates will be on this App. 

We wish all applicants luck and only expect them to do their own best. Thank you.
